I did not care for this recipe.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is brilliant. I couldn't find leeks at a reasonable price ($5.29/lb is not reasonable) so I substituted garlic and celery, but even then it was delicious! Highly recommended.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Three stars because it's far too sweet for me - I felt like scraping my mouth out after trying it. It is a good recipe IF you cut the sugar in half or less - 1/4 cup worked for me.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I like this recipe, but I'd suggest using actual cheap fresh jalapeños rather than the massively, ridiculously mega-overpriced canned version. They're $3.29 for a tiny can here while fresh jalapenos are 49 cents a pound.

Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This worked well. I made my own pie crust (graham crackers - feh) and used homemade low-fat fromage blanc for the cream cheese and it still was flavourful and rich. Oh, and acorn squash for the pumpkin works well too - just bake it in halves, cool it, mash, and let sit overnight in the fridge in a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Handy when squash is dirt cheap!

Cajun Style Corn Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I liked it, but not having a green and red bell pepper I used Hungarian and Anaheim peppers. I also replaced the water with whey because I had some to use up. Good stuff, though!

Ash-e-jow (Iranian/Persian Barley Soup)

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This was delicious! I don't know why I'm surprised - Persian food is always great - but wow! I would absolutely make this again! And it's perfect for a summer dinner.

Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
Excellent if a bit bland, but don't waste good lamb by roasting it to well-done: 155F or medium-rare will give you the best flavour.

Chicken and Rice Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Note: this will not work unless you use that horrible, expensive, disgusting instant rice product. Also if it does work it's just another oversalted, pre-processed "glop from a can" dish. What a horrendous waste of expensive chicken breasts this was!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I replaced the all-purpose and whole wheat flour with unbleached spelt flour. They turned out delicious and had perfect texture. Thank you for the recipe - it's going into the permanent collection!

Peruvian Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
The CDA and other medical organizations suggest 4 oz. of meat per serving. This therefore makes TWO servings. TWO, not six. Unfortunately, it also makes from four to eight servings of rice, which is less than useful. I suggest that the user either triple the amount of meat or reduce the amount of liquid and rice by two-thirds.

Sweet Mustard Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I made this with thighs. It turned out well, but I cut the butter waaaay down - one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of olive oil was more than enough. I also added some cayenne and a little bit of powdered ancho chili for flavour.

Elegant Chicken

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
Horrible. Not even close to being edible. Incredibly expensive per serving. And that's without the "chipped beef", whatever that is. The sauce was a clotted mess.

Grandma's Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
This was extremely bland as is. I instead used fresh mushrooms (who uses canned mushrooms anyway?), some hot peppers, coriander and fennel, and served it with grilled eggplant and rice pasta. Very good if it's changed!

Halushki

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This was a bit bland, but it was good. I would strongly recommend using stewing pork or pork shoulder, not expensive pork chops, for this recipe. 1 1/2 lb of pork chops costs $15.00 here - the same amount of shoulder costs $2.50.

Catherine's Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
The problem with sirloin tip is that it's wildly unpredictable. One sirloin tip can be tender while the next can be as tough as shoe leather. This recipe would work well with a tender roast, but not with a tough one. I found it was also rather bland.

Jim's Pork Chorizo

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
Excellent once I realized the recipe called for American-style chili powder and not just ground chiles, and *Spanish* paprika instead of the normal Hungarian paprika. (We don't all live in the US, so specific instructions as to what kind of "chili powder" and "paprika" would have been nice - they do differ immensely from country to country).

Roasted Rosemary Chicken And Vegetables

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
Meat turned out greasy and hard; vegetables were greasy and boring. It wasn't inedible, but it needed a whole lotta spices to make interesting. If you do make this, it helps to parboil the carrots for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on their age) before roasting.
